Tell us a little more about your business.
Réflexe Santé specializes in reflexology, a natural health therapy treatment that activates physiological and neurological response through the application of pressure on specific areas of the feet hands and ears. Our mission is to help our clients reach their health and wellness goals by providing natural therapeutic solutions in the hands of skilled and caring professionals. Owner Louise Groulx is a former registered nurse and a certified reflexologist by the Reflexologists Association of Canada. The micro-clinic Réflexe Santé opened in Orleans in October of 2012 and will soon be outgrowing its current facility. Look for Réflexe Santé’s new location to be announced in 2014.
What sets your business apart from other businesses in your industry?
Réflexe Santé is one of the only clinics in Ottawa totally dedicated to the practice of reflexology and its services are provided in both French and English. It also produces and uses only natural oils designed in-house to accentuate the benefits of the treatments. Reflexologist Louise Groulx has achieved an unusually high level of success by quadrupling the national average of hours a certified therapist spends practicing reflexology as a full time dedicated service. For the most part, reflexology in Canada is offered as a secondary service in more traditional wellness practices.
Réflexe Santé’s Orleans micro-clinic provides a warm and inviting environment favourable to relaxation and wellbeing but also features a mobile clinic for residences and workplace therapy throughout the region. Réflexe Santé introduced a Workplace Wellness program that offers turnkey or customized solutions designed to help businesses or groups reach their corporate health and wellness goals through reflexology. Réflexe Santé also launched a series of Wellness@Home events providing families and friends with unique learning experience designed to combine fun and relaxation in the comfort of home.
What clients do you enjoy working with the most?
I enjoy helping women with the various challenges of living through menopause. Reflexology has helped numerous women with these challenges and I love seeing results. Additionally, I enjoy treating the countless people suffering from neck and lower back pain and provide relief to a condition hindering so many. With reflexology, the elderly find relief from circulatory issues, teachers and other highly stressed workers find relief from their tension and stress. I also love to work with expecting mothers and help new moms with a colicky newborn. Reflexology provides benefits and relief to men and women of all age groups. Ultimately, it is rewarding to see results, lives changed and quality of life improved.
